Carlos Morales to Share Insight on the Current Threat Landscape for Hosting Providers

Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of network security and management solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, will be participating at this year’s HostingCon 2012, Boston on July 17. Arbor Networks will give insight on DDoS attack vectors and practical strategies for maintaining service availability.

WHO:    Carlos Morales, Vice President, Systems Engineering and Sales Operations at Arbor Networks

WHAT:    Morales will present on a panel moderated by Jeffrey Lyon President & CEO at Black Lotus Communications. Other panelists include: Matthew Prince, Co-Founder and CEO of CloudFlare, Kevin Hatfield, an independent DDoS security consultant and Richard Zhao, Chief Strategy Officer of NSFOCUS. The session Technology Strategies and Practices for Defending Against DDoS Attacks underscores the importance for practical strategies for mitigating distributed denial of service attacks which are now a primary concern for hosting providers.

"Hosting providers often have a higher risk of DDoS attacks than other online businesses because, in effect, they aggregate the risk of all their customers," says Carlos Morales, vice president of global sales engineering and operations at Arbor Networks. ”Planning and mitigation strategies are essential because the impact of an availability attack is directly related to preparedness, the time it takes to identify and mitigate it. Unprepared organizations will see extended downtime and all the associated costs, from lost revenue to broken SLAs to brand damage.”
